My book, The Mountains-to-Sea Trail Across North Carolina, has been published. The official publication date in February 12, 2013 though it will take a few days to find it in stores. I got my copies from the History Press late last week. Yippee!
When I asked Sharon McCarthy if she wanted to walk the Mountains-to-Sea Trail with me, I had no idea that it would take me on such a long and exciting journey. We started at Clingmans Dome in the Smokies in October 2009. We walked the trail in sections and I finished in May of 2011–Sharon finished a little later.
Then I started writing a book on my spectacular, quirky and historic walk. I walked all the new sections of trail that had been moved off the road since 2011. I wrote, researched, hiked and wrote some more. The History Press picked up the book and created a beautiful book, with color and black and white photographs.
See the great publicity they’re doing for the book.
I’ll be doing talks and slide shows for bookstores, outdoor stores and outdoor groups. My book launch is at Diamond Brand Outdoors on March 5. I hope to see you there or at one of my many other book events.
